Hello Gorgeous, I hope this note finds you well …. this is the self talk I started to address myself as I recap how certain things or people had me f*cKed Up. In a perfect world everyone respects each other’s value and acts accordingly, but in this day and age ONLY YOU have the power to own who you say You are .. Let’s be clear…. things will show up and challenge you but try not to take it personally …. it has nothing to do with you personally so learn from every occasion…Trust Me .

. “When you’re told you’re not good enough, you tell them, not only am I good enough, I’m more than enough,” she said. “When they say send her back home, you tell them, I am home. I am the foundation of what you call home. When they tell you that you’re angry or nasty, you tell them that they’re mistaken. This is me. This is me being resolute and standing firmly in my truth. And when they say you’re not beautiful, you tell them that you are the descendant of royalty.”

For the last month or so I have been having so much to say but the words would not seem to escape. I’ve uploaded blog post only to have them sit in draft status. Week after week , and I would tell myself I have to shake this off but somehow it still seemed to stay attached even beyond the eviction notices I have given myself . Truth is I was brunt out which drove my creativity out the window . Have you ever found yourself making the commitment and in the same moment everyone and everything is demanding your attention. We all have things that make our heart proud , and yet we tend to put our desires on the back burner. We not about to pay anymore of the games .

“Only make decisions that support your self-image, self-esteem, and self-worth.”

By this point if you are where I was… and you are tired of not thriving in the space you know you belong this is for you . What I know for sure it won’t be easy , but it is worth it . I have made it a non-negotiable …show up despite how you may feel . I understand life happens and somethings truly have powerful blows but your purpose is bigger .

who are You ?

We tend to second guess who we are and what we really bring to the table . I was recently updating my performance manger at my day job , and as I am entering my accomplishments I am like Diedre you got the juice !!. I realized certain areas I was selling myself short . You have to be okay with not accepting other people opinion on what you should be or this and that . Identify who you really are and show up accordingly.

improve your weaknesses

if this was easy we all would be out here with no flaws . This is going to take a real level of honesty, I call it inventory which I do on a weekly basis . I had to pinpoint where is my lack interest was coming from and how can I over come it . If you are someone who doesn’t read but you need to learn more .. find other avenues that will provide the same solution such as , blog posts, podcast , audiobooks, YouTube video ect . Make the commitment to improve with a solution you are comfortable with .

Kill self Doubt

We will talk ourselves out of an opportunity faster than being told no . I am a firm believer what’s for me will never pass me but . I will never lose …every situation is a learning experience. If he brought the thought or idea to your mind it is your job the carry out the mission and try.
